Cleanings & Checkups

Prevention is the key to excellent oral health and a beautiful smile. Regular cleanings and checkups are the best way to improve your oral health and catch any dental issues before they become a danger to your health and smile. At Court Square Dentistry, we recommend that most of our patients visit us at least twice a year for their regular cleanings and checkups to stay on top of their oral health maintenance with general dentistry.

While home oral hygiene is a vital part of caring for your smile, nothing can replace professional cleanings and checkups for oral care. Dr. Mapes and our hygienist conduct thorough examinations of your teeth and gums to ensure that your smile is in good health. Professional cleanings can remove plaque and tartar that brushing and flossing alone cannot. The good news is most dental insurance plans cover routine preventive maintenance, making it affordable. For our patients that do not have adequate dental insurance, we have a wonderful discount in-house dental plan that covers your routine exams and cleanings and offers discounts on other services.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

Why is it so important to have regular dental exams? Your oral health is not just about maintaining a beautiful smile, although that is important to most of our patients. Your gums and teeth are a vital part of your overall health. Gum disease has been linked to serious health conditions, including strokes, type 2 diabetes, pregnancy issues and more. Dr. Mapes performs comprehensive dental exams using the latest technology to gauge your oral health. This along with a thorough exam of your gums by our hygienist can identify any periodontal or dental issues that need treatment. The quicker we can catch a potential oral health issue, the faster we can offer treatment, protecting your health and saving you money in the long run.
